The Democratic National Convention released a mobile app, a first for political convention, on Tuesday.
The app, available on the iPhone and iPad, features maps, media, a Twitter feed and locators for restaurants and things to do in Charlotte.
When you first open the app, it asks for your mobile and email address. This is a political app, after all, and they want your contact information to add you to lists. Fortunately, there is a "skip" button.
The app opens to convention media -- videos, press releases, photo slideshows -- but the cool features are under the CLT in 2012 tab.
The menu allows users to "make it possible for me to be a" and gives you different choices that will lead the user to different spots in Charlotte.
For example, the "hipster" option will point users to NoDa and Plaza-Midwood, where the cool kids rock out at Snug Harbor and eat at Soul Gastrolounge and Cabo Fish Taco.
You want to find hidden treasures? The app will point you to Price's Chicken Coop, a longtime Charlotte favorite, and Reed Gold Mine in Cabarrus County, where gold was first discovered in America.
There's even an option to find LGBT-friendly places around the Queen City.
